Paris Jackson Attends Metallica Concert
In a recent interview with Vogue, Paris Jackson (daughter of the late Michael Jackson), claimed she skipped her high school prom to see a Metallica concert.
Vogue documented a behind-the-scenes look at the pairpreparing for the big night. Prince mentioned he was looking for new music to listen to, to which Paris said she’ll send him some of her playlists, asking, “You just started listening to Motley Crue, right?”
Prince claimed that he’s started listening to the hair metal band again recently. “I know you weren’t a huge fan when I was going through my insane phase,” added Paris, confessing her own fandom, “But now you’re really getting into all the rock ‘n’ roll bands that I love.”
Later in the clip, Paris tries on a second dress, which she revealed would have been her idea dress for her high school prom (she’s now 21), but she passed on the classic formal dance, opting for metal instead. “This is my second dress and I feel like a princess. I never actually went to prom. I skipped it to go see Metallica, so this feels nice,” she divulged.
Metallica are currently on a break due to the fact that frontman James Hetfield is off at rehab. The band will be back next year to play.

Paoletti and Guns N’ Roses’ Richard Fortus announce the 4Tus Leather Hot Baby Junior,
Italian builder Paoletti Guitars has announced a new product titled 4Tus Leather Hot Baby Junior, the company’s second electric guitar collaboration with Guns N’ Roses’ Richard Fortus.
The new guitar features a body made of chestnut wood reclaimed from 130 to 150-year-old wine barrels -which according to company founder Fabrizio Paoletti.
“Chestnut is alive – it breathes,” he told Guitar Player. “It’s a wood that brings a high number of harmonics, which I think is something that is very important, and it is also the king of sustain. There is a focus on middle-bass frequencies, but the tone is also malleable, depending on the other woods used in the guitar.”
The single-cut model features a roasted Canadian maple neck, an aged nickel pickguard, a white croc pattern Italian leather top and a 4tus logo laser-engraved on the headstock.
The handmade pickups with custom electronics were personally designed by Richard fortus guitarist, who explains, “the reverse angle on the tele bridge pickup gives the low end more attack and clarity where the top strings are warmer.”
